    Is this Bench Boostable? (Would be a -4 to bring Neto in (DGW))

    Areola

    Gabriel Doughty* Zabarnyi*
    Bowen Son Foden Saka
    Haaland Watkins Solanke C*

    Neto* Kabore* Saliba Gordon

    Plan was to WC35 BB37 but this team has peaked my interest to BB this week so WC35 isnt affected by DGW37 players...

    Yes or No?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years

      No

      Why would you WC so late if you don't want the BB to be "affected" by DGW37 players?

    Hi all. Would you do Ake to doughy for a -4?? Going to FH in 29 either way. Thanks

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      No

    2. Bob B
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not if you're on FH

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      No. Maybe if it gave you the extra fixture in 29

    4. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      nope

    5. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      nope

    I’m looking for a panenka specialist for mine team. Thank you!

    1. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years

      Berbatov

    2. KunDogan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Zidane

    3. YoungPretender

      Ademola Lookman

    4. Brehmeren

      3 months, 11 days ago

      Panenka

  4. Bob B
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    A. Foden + Morris
    (Foden OR Saka to Maddison in 29, before a WC)

    B. Barkley + Solanke (-4)
    (Foden AND Saka out in 28 and 29, before a WC)

  5. Cilly Bonnolly

    3 months, 11 days ago

    I’ve just noticed Kabore played ninety minutes this gameweek just gone. He’s third on my bench because he never plays. Is he worth sticking in my eleven for the double? Do we expect him to play?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I wonder what sort of return he’d bring?

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Between 0-3 I suspect.

  6. YoungPretender
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Planning FH29 and got 2 FTs;

    Areola
    Gabriel Virgil Gusto
    Saka Foden KDB Palmer
    Watkins Solanke Haaland

    Dubravka Taylor Estupinan Hwang*

    Thinking of Estupinan & Hwang > Zabarnyi & Tavanier.

    Would mean benching KDB/Foden and Gusto/Virgil…

    Thoughts?

  7. Botman and Robben
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    People going with Doughty over Zabarnyi because of more attacking threat of the former?

    1. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah probably. I’m going Zabarnyi just because he has better fixtures going forward till I probably wildcard.

    2. Wild Card this!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      No. It’s because Doughty has game in GW29 while Zabarnyi doesn’t. Plus attacking treat of course…

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Well it's not for CS, that's for sure!

  8. Podorsky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 14 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    No love for Semenyo? Any Bournemouth fans know if he is nailed, looked pretty good in the last couple of games.

    1. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      If he was classified as a mid then I probably would. No room for him as a forward.

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah I'm starting him this week. Think its just that most aren't willing to sacrifice Haaland/Watkins/Solanke (or Morris if not FHing)

      1. Podorsky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Well I have to FH, thinking of taking Halland ourt for him, I think a bigger upside than for the defenders.

  9. _Gunner

    Morning All,

    Current team: 1FT, 0.3 itb

    Areola
    Gabriel Ake Gusto
    Son Saka Foden GroS
    Haaland Solanke (c) Watkins

    subs: Petrovic Gordon VVD Lamptey

    Which is better?

    A- VVD + Gordon > Zabarnyi + Bowen -4
    B- VVD > Zabarnyi
    C- Something else?

    1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Gordon has good upcoming fixtures. Can you do Gross instead?

  10. Arteta
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Is doing Haaland ➡ Morris for free too crazy? This match at Anfield is the one where I can see him blanking.

    We're looking at three easier games versus a very difficult one. Erling isn't in the form of his life; the fear factor isn't the same, and I don't mind paying 0.2 or something like that to bring him back later. Of course, it depends on people's plans and chips, but I might just take a chance. I feel like there's more to gain than to lose in my case. 

    1. Arteta
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Before anybody asks, I already own Solanke.

    2. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Well I guess you would want him back asap after and at least in my case I want to use FTs bringing Salah back.

    3. ViperStripes
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I've already made that FT. Will WC30 to bring Haaland back.

    4. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'm even considering it for -4 but very wary that could backfire.

      For the reasons you mention, a hit this week (with an extra fixture for Morris to make it up) feels better than a potential hit next week.

      It would also allow you to get Salah instead of Haaland in GW30 if you're feeling double-brave!

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Should add I'm not using my free hit in 29 as I already have 9 players (but 5 are defenders so need at least another 2 mids/forwards)

  11. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Bench Odegaard or Son?

    1. Deulofail
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Nah

    2. Deulofail
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Okay Odegaard

    3. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Poor management!

      1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I have dgw fever, I cant bench Barkley!

        1. The Knights Template
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Huzzah, I wish you well in the battles to come!

    4. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Boost that bench bruh

  12. Il Capitano
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    1FT 0.2m ITB

    Areola
    Gabriel Saliba Konsa
    KDB Son Saka Foden
    Haaland Watkins Solanke (C)

    Dubravka - Maguire* Lascelles Hwang*

    Mags > Zabarnyi and benching Konsa seems fairly obvious, maybe KDB out for a hit to Bowen/Tavernier? Will FH in 29 and likely WC in 30.

    1. Super John McGinn-
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Maguire > Zavarnyi

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      No to hit

      1. Il Capitano
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers, one last week for Kevin de Blank it is.

  13. Super John McGinn-
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Free hitting in 29
    Obviously have a Raya problem so looking to replace him with Neto, made the mistake bringing in Senesi early last week, anything else worth a hit?

    Raya*
    Gabriel, Moreno, Gusto
    KDB, Saka, Bowen, Garnacho
    Haaland, Watkins, Solanke (C)

    Turner, Foden, Bradley, Senesi*

    1 FT 0.0 ITB

    A) Raya > Neto
    B) Raya + KDB > Neto + Son (-4)
    C) Raya + Senesi > Neto + Doherty (-4)
    D) All 3 for -8
    E) Other

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I am assuming you mean Doughty from Luton and not Doherty from wolves. Just the neto move

    2. Bavarian
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Senesi > Zabarnyi

  14. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Ake to Zabarnyi/Kerkez with the 1FT.

    Need to decide if I should take a hit
    - Dubravka to Neto
    - Hee Chan to Tavernier (bench Foden)

    FH29/WCXX/BB37 left
    1FT 2.9ITB
    Areola
    Saliba Gabriel Ake
    Saka Foden Son Palmer
    Haaland Watkins Solanke
    (Dubravka Hwang* Porro* Taylor)

    1. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Wouldn’t bench Foden in his form. Areola has a good fixture this week so wouldn’t take the hit there, think your G2G.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers BM. That's my current thoughts as well

  15. FourLokoLeipzig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Looking forward to my Sarabia set piece hauls with Cunha and Hwang out the next few weeks

  16. Maddamotha
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Would you do this for a -4?

    Ake, Nunez > Zabarnyi, Solanke (C)

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Solanke yes.

      Who are your other defenders and chip strategy

      1. Maddamotha
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        My others are Gabriel, Estu, Taylor and Trusty. Quite bad. But plan is to freehit in 29

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Probably take the defender hit as you can start him in 30-32. Defence is a mess though having to rely on Ake (not nailed), Estupinan (not nailed and poor form) and two bench fodder

          1. Maddamotha
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Yes indeed. Been a mess last couple of weeks. Anyway, thanks for the feedback!

  17. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Walker to Daughty worth a hit? ( Would play Walker vs Liv)

    1. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not worth a hit imo

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      FH29?

    3. Karan14
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yes

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Need more info. 29 plans and chip strategy

  18. Botman and Robben
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Transfer done, GTG? Will FH in 29.

    Areola
    Gabriel Saliba Zabarnyi
    Foden KDB Saka Palmer
    Watkins Haaland Solanke(C)

    Turner Taylor Gomez Hwang*

    1. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years

      G2G

    2. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      9/11 with my team. G2G.

  19. Karan14
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Is Foden (liv, blank, ARS) to Bowen (BUR, AVL, new) worth -4 this week?

    Not using FH for BGW29. Will WC in GW31.

    If not this week would do it for a hit next week.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Same dilemma, more about this week, Bowen should cover Foden in 29-30 with the hit.

      1. Karan14
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Agreed this is the risky week. Really not sure how the Pool-City game will go.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 15 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Tonight might be a decent guide.

  20. mdm
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Senesi to Zaba for -4 or save and play Reg (ars)?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      FH29?

      1. mdm
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Yes

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 15 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          If you'll play Zaba in 30 etc then should be ok. Can't expect much from Reg this week

    Any way to bypass FPL Statistics cookies?

    1. Holmes
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Dont think so

      last statement was rude enough to stop using it.

      1. Deulofail
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        The "If, however, you are not willing to provide consent you may as well close this page as the site will not function effectively without your consent."?

        Yeah, seems a bit off. I thought I found a way around it, but not sure what. Maybe Brave browser, but it's not working on that now.

        Do you use something else instead?

        1. Holmes
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Haven't really checked it (or any other price prediction site) for a long time tbh. I think I was able to access it couple of times through incognito but that seems to be not working today.

          Quick google search has this site as 2nd option and its not asking for any cookie thing: https://www.fantasyfootballhub.co.uk/fantasy-premier-league-price-rises

          Not sure about the accuracy but claims to be 98% accurate.

          1. Deulofail
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Thanks. I figured it out. The site works on Brave browser with shields down, though I think you are still prone to google cookies. I'm not knowledgeable enough to understand

    2. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Is Cumbria nice? The FPL Statistics site keeps inviting me to buy a house in Cumbria! If I wanted a house in Cumbria I would just lay siege to it, I wouldn’t buy it!

      1. Deulofail
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        It's grim up there. You could probably buy it for cheaper than the cost of a picnic, let alone a siege.

        1. The Knights Template
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          The picture looked like it was a fifteenth century thatched cottage - very stylish in mine opinion.

          1. Deulofail
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            So you are almost obliged to set the tips of your arrows alight. Yet another expense.

  22. Deulofail
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Wouldn't it be crucial to consider whether corners are direct or indirect (short)? And then consider who crosses the ball, if anyone, from an indirect corner?

    I'm not sure how it works for freekicks that are tapped sideways for a teammate to shoot or cross from. Presumably, the crosser/shooter doesn't get counted in these stats?

    I know it's more complex to broaden the parameters, and you could keep broadening and broadening them, but I feel the approach to set pieces in this article is too simplistic - valuable to a degree, but could also be misleading.

  23. Marinakis Reds
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 11 days ago

    Hi all,

    My current thinking is to play through 29 with a hit and then Wildcard in 30/31

    My team atm w/ 2FTs for GW28:

    Areola
    Gabriel Saliba Burn Pau Taylor
    Palmer Foden KDB Saka Richarlison
    Haaland Watkins Darwin

    The plan I think is:
    GW28: Darwin, Burn & KDB to Solanke, Doughty & Bowen - 4
    GW29: - Solanke & Saka - Toney and Bowen - 4

    So for GW29 with a -8 between now and then can give me Areola, Pau, Doughty, Taylor, Bowen, Son, Toney & Watkins. Plus if Richy makes a quick comeback that will be one more. So 8 or 9.

    Would you guys do this?
    Or would you bring Solanke for Morris in GW28 and gamble Solanke doesn't haul.

    I'm not having my best season so on catch up now.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      No Solanke means you need to find a captain but if you are right with a Solanke fail then can make good ground. Obviously can go the opposite way.

  24. Vovhund
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Need to bring in Solanke for Archer this week using KdB to free up funds. I'm on FH29 and WC30/31, so what midfielder should I get? (priced out of Bowen):
    A) Palmer
    B) Harvertz
    C) Kudus
    D) Kluivert
    E) Tavernier

    1. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Arsenal have been in great form. So I like the punt on B.

  25. Eightball
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Turner to Neto for a -4 or just play Areola.

    Quite tempted as Neto has much better fixtures over the next few gameweeks as well as a double this week and potentially double in 34.

    1. The Tonberry
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I think it's worth the hit to bring Neto in for a non playing keeper if you're planning on playing him for the fixtures after BGW29

      • The-Red-1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        If you pretend Areola has a DGW and got 4 points in his first game with Neto still to play his first, who would you prefer?

        I suspect this doesn't help, but a different way of looking at it

        1. Eightball
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Ye I think it's quite close for just this gameweek but then you factor in gw30 & 31 for West Ham are tricky games. Still on the fence but could be worth the gamble.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Nudy-sense tingling!

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Or is that Nudie- sense tingling?

        1. The Knights Template
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Either way, I think they’re coming!

    3. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years

      Think I can get to 9 or 10 players with a minus 4 this week and possibly next GW for BGW29 and WC after.

      1FT 1.0ITB

      Areola
      VVD, Gabriel, Udogie
      Saka, Foden, KDB, Maddison
      Haaland, Watkins, Solanke
      Dubravka, Garnacho, Taylor, Reguillon

      VVD to Doughty and KDB to Son or Bowen -4?

        good moves

          Thanks do you prefer Son or Bowen?

          I’ve not enjoyed owning Bowen with West Ham’s style of play but a great fixture this week. Son in the more attacking team but a tough game and I’ve got Maddison. Think I will have both for next GW anyhow.

            Son a potential captain in 29 vs Fulham if that helps?

            1. Bucket Man
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Thanks. Yes need him whether it’s this week or next. Think I’m leaning towards Son.

            Son has the better 29 and 30 fixtures if that swings it?

        Look at you waltzing in all clothed and disrupting the sequence!

        Son for me

          Haha. Thank you.

      A -4 is only a -2 if you buy a player for the blank to get near to 11 players is how I'm justifying some of my picks.

      Afternoon everyone. What would you do with this team?

      No FTs left this week, not playing FH29 as I have 9 players already (but 5 are defenders so need more attackers). Plan is to WC31.

      A) Haaland to Morris (-4)
      B) Leave it alone
      C) Something else

      0FT 2.5ITB
      Areola
      Doughty Kabore Robinson
      Son Saka Foden Bowen
      Haaland Watkins Solanke

      Dubravka Gordon Reguilon Cash

      Thanks

        Would save. Nicely set this week and can get to 11 players for free next week which is better than lots.

          Thanks. Can only get to 10 for free as I've used my FTs this week. Would be open to a hit next week, hence why I'm considering it doing this week instead (make use of the extra fixture).

          But I'm also scared of selling the big Norwegian!

          1. Bucket Man
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            It could work selling Haaland for Morris with his two fixtures personally think I’d stick with Haaland this week and take the hit for 11 next week.

              nice one, cheers. good luck!

      Areola, Pau, Odegaard, Ait Nouri - bench boost of not? Suspect no way

        Eewwwwwwwwwwwwww!

        3 months, 11 days ago

        Yes No Yes No

        Øde might hurt - no other options?

      3. Bucket Man
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Not for me. Areola chance of a clean sheet. Odegaard could get a return. The other two I suspect won’t.

      4. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I wouldn't. I think you can still have a really strong XI and use BB further down the line when the doubles come into play

      5. Bobby Digital
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I'd probably BB just to get it over with. I'm boosting with Areola, DLuiz, Emerson and Udogie.
